Cellared this for a year plus in hopes of some Brett development.
Bright golden color, persistent plume of racing carbonation. Long lasting head of foam that settles but never really dissipates.
Aromas of dried pineapple, flinty wet stone, and wet hay. There's Brett in here alright...
Dry, very light residual sweetness, slightly tangy. Flavors of wet hay and funky yeast character though it's fairly restrained. Some minerality, tangy unripe fruit, leather, vague spices, mild aftertaste of clover honey. Medium bodied and a little over-carbonated for my tastes. Flavorful and approachable, Brux falls on the lighter side of the Brett spectrum, and that's ok. It's enjoyable for what it is.
